Dohn Hoyle Requests Your Support for our

Public Policy/Governmental Affairs efforts

Dear Supporters of The Arc Michigan,

I am sure you are aware that I have turned the reins of our organization over to the very capable hands of Sherri Boyd. Sherri and the Board of Directors have asked me to continue, albeit part time, to direct our Public Policy/Governmental Affairs efforts. I am pleased to be able to do so.

In past years, Iíve appealed to you to please help support our efforts in this area. This time, Iím making the same appeal, as the former Executive Director and current Director of Public Policy for The Arc Michigan.

We face unprecedented issues and the potential for drastic change in the coming months and year. Unprecedented, just from the number of things which are at risk and drastic because of the extent of the changes we face.

We have, I believe, been well positioned and very effective in our efforts in this arena, to this point. I am asking for your help in allowing us to be instrumental in maintaining our system and assuring a bright future for all we attempt to serve. Please! Continue and Renew your support for the Arc Michigan. It matters, more than ever!


Please click here to donate to our Public Policy/Governmental Affairs efforts.


Thank you in advance for your assistance,


Dohn Hoyle
